Fantasy Overview - Week 3

Get yourself caught up on what's going on in the league as we enter Week 3 of the NFL season. Here's my take on the fantasy landscape around the league and how you can benefit. 

We are two weeks into the season and we're starting to get some clarity, which is always a good thing, no matter if it's good news or bad. It's the unknown and making important decisions involving the unknown, which makes this hobby a challenge. The more we know, the better off we are.

So what do we know? we know a lot, actually

The first three weeks of the season are my favorite. So much is being learned at this time. The cream is rising to the top. Opportunities are being presented for players and several have answered the bell with a successful first two games. Injuries are starting to mount, especially for quarterbacks. With every injury comes an opportunity for someone else to fill the void, and the cycle continues. Winning your league is about having key performers and knowing who to target before they rise to power. Although it's not a must, players on winning teams are generally more successful fantasy options.

Teams that are 2-0: Buffalo, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Green Bay, Chicago, Los Angeles Rams, Arizona, Seattle

Teams that are 0-2: Miami, New York Jets, Cincinnati, Houston, Denver, Philadelphia, New York Giants, Minnesota, Detroit, Atlanta, Carolina

What makes a successful fantasy running back?

1. Opportunity - There is more of a chance to have success if the opportunity for carries is high. The following teams lead the way in running plays per game. You want to have running backs on these teams. These are also the backs you should target for proactive waiver claims.
